Do you support a local or national charity – and why?
Our recent Giving Opinions survey found 77 per cent of respondents would prefer to support a local charity over a national one working for the same cause. The survey also revealed a view that donations to smaller charities were more likely to be spent on the cause as opposed to costs associated with running the organisation. What do you think?
